Context and Other Things

I will be attending Context next weekend (August something through something). I'm not listed on their website and they were "unable" to fit me in for a reading but I'll be there both Friday and Saturday and will mostly be in the dealers' room at the Atlatl/Grindhouse Press table, out front smoking, or at the bar across the parking lot. I'll be joined by fellow friends and authors D. Harlan Wilson and Gina Ranalli.

Speaking of D. Harlan Wilson... He will be there debuting his latest short story collection, They Had Goat Heads, which is being released through Atlatl Press. If you're unable to attend the convention and would still like a signed copy, you have until Wednesday, August 25 to order it through the Atlatl Press website. You can also listen to Wilson's interview for The Funky Werepig where he talks about They Had Goat Heads, the Scikungfi Trilogy, and who he could take in arm wrestling.

Grindhouse Press Book 002, Wayne Hixon's Vampires in Devil Town, is NOW AVAILABLE. Yes, it's a couple of weeks early.

After Context, my wife and I will be driving through New England and winding up at the Horrorfind Weekend convention in Gettysburg, PA, where I'll be doing a reading (probably part of "Corpse Mountain" from my latest Eraserhead Press book, Slag Attack) and signing books with authors Jordan Krall and Eric Mays.

Then I will be coming home and finishing Satanic Summer and laying out and copyediting the next Grindhouse Press book (The Horribles by Nathaniel Lambert) so this might be my last post for a while!

Horrorfind Weekend and Other Things

The reading schedule has been posted for Horrorfind Weekend. I'll be reading with D. Harlan Wilson, Jordan Krall, and Eric Mays. Thanks to bang-up writer Brian Keene for organizing this.

My fifth Eraserhead Press book, Slag Attack, is now available. If you order it today and send me an email at andersenprunty at yahoo dot com, I'll send you some free stuff.

Besides Slag Attack, Eraserhead released quite a few other books.

Pete Risley's first book is now available from New Pulp Press. It's called Rabid Child. I was lucky enough to score an advance copy of this and really liked it. I would like to have given it a longer review but time just wasn't on my side. Here's what I did have to say about it: Pete Risley’s Rabid Child is a brilliant character study of a man blighted to the core of his being, his depravity mirrored in the sad and rotting world around him. Think Dostoevsky’s Raskolnikov if he were in a John Waters film and you would have something that comes very close to Risley’s Desmond Cray. Noir in scope, situations become increasingly dire and outrageous. If you want to find out exactly how dire and outrageous things can get, I highly recommend this book.

You still have time to pre-order a signed copy of D. Harlan Wilson's forthcoming book, They Had Goat Heads.

The price of many of my Kindle titles has been reduced to anywhere between .99 and 2.99.
